New Music for New Instruments

Today’s composers typically compose for instruments that were developed a century ago or more, while modern instrument builders develop, build, promote, compose for, and perform their own creations. But the partnership of music and instruments is an ever-evolving story. The interaction of composers and builders is central to the development of the musical language of our time, and new instruments are often the instigators of new directions or new genres.
"New Music for New Instruments" is a program of new works created through the collaboration of instrument builders, Andy Cavatorta, Merche Blasco, and Nick Yulman working together with composers, Angelica Negron, Albert Behar, Fjola Evans and Molly Herron. Each artist has a voice in the creation, exploring the potential of the instruments and allowing the music be affected by the instruments it is written for. The result is a conversation about music and the potential of new sounds and new interfaces for engaging dynamic performances that reopen the dialogue between composers and new instrument builders.

I’m really excited to share a very special project I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. New Music for New Instruments is a program of works created through the collaboration of instrument builders Andy Cavatorta, Merche Blasco, and Nick Yulman and composers Angélica Negrón, Albert Behar, Fjóla Evans and Molly Herron. This program of world premieres will be presented on Sunday, November 16th at 7:30 pm at Brooklyn’s Littlefield.
For this program I’ve been creating a piece using text from the Little Prince featuring a boy soprano (the super talented Ari!) singing amongst a sea of robotic modules that can produce sound out of any object, created by the amazing Nick Yulman.
This will be an incredible show so if you’re in NYC it’s definitely one not to miss! If you would like support this project we’re also running a Kickstarter campaign.
